Broccoli & Angel Hair Pasta Recipe

Step 1

Cut broccoli into small pieces. Chop elephant head garlic into small pieces. Place broccoli in a microwave safe container. Add about 1/4 cup water. Cover lightly with plastic wrap. Cook in microwave on high for 3-5 minutes. Check for doneness. Want to keep broccoli a little crisp. While broccoli is cooking, cook angel hair pasta until slightly firm. Drain.

Step 2

Melt the stick of butter in the pan you cooked angel hair in. Add angel hair back to pan and toss to coat pasta. Add broccoli and toss lightly. Pour some olive oil in a small frying pan. Add chopped garlic and some crushed red pepper. Brown garlic. Garlic will clump together when done. Pour over pasta and broccoli. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Can add some white pepper if desired. Toss until well mixed.
